Kaspersky Lab will launch a new campaign aimed at helping parents ensure the safety of their children when using the internet.

The email address safekids@kaspersky.com is now active and will be deactivated on Thursday 31 August.

Parents are advised to start sending their questions to the email address and an expert from the Kaspersky Lab will answer them and provide solutions.

Konstantin Ignatev, acting head of content analysis and research at Kaspersky Lab, says: “Today, children are not only exposed to a lot more as a result of technology, but it is also difficult for parents to keep up, as technology constantly evolves.

“It is with this reality in mind that we are hoping to provide some assistance, based on our own research and learning, to any parent out there, who may have specific technology questions that they need some guidance on.”

He says feedback will be based on the experience and research Kaspersky Lab undertakes globally on a daily basis.

Ignatev explains that the Kaspersky Lab will also take advantage of broader knowledge of other experts by referring parents to them should the lab be unable to give answers to certain questions.

“Should there be an instance where the question requires professional feedback, where Kaspersky Lab is not able to provide such feedback, the brand will provide a resource where such information can be sourced,” says Ignatev.
